Australia is a maritime nation with a significant sea-faring history. It has a long coastline and jurisdiction over offshore islands and Antarctica, as well as offshore oil and gas fields. Most exports and imports are still carried by sea and the nation's ports are important contributors to the national and regional economies. The law relating to maritime activities is a mixture of customary law, contract law, tort law and international conventions. Maritime Law is also remarkably uniform throughout the world because it is based on commercial realities and extensive trading between maritime nations over centuries.
